Sponsor a mom (or dad!)
Special needs moms are not superheroes. We are ordinary mothers raising extraordinary children. Whether through birth or adoption, caring for a disabled child (or adult) is both rewarding and challenging. Some moms need real respite (not just a babysitter for a few hours).
Give the gift of rest to a mom you know! Donate the full amount for her visit, or just a portion towards the cost. Sponsor a mom by donating on the link below or by sending a check to AMR, 32 West Main Street New Market, MD 21774
Gift cards are also available. Scheduling a respite retreat for your favorite special needs mom is a great surprise gift! We'll send a lovely card with an invitation and the opportunity to customize her trip!
*** Do you own a travel or health business? Serve in a church? Manage a special needs family support group (Down syndrome/Autism/ADHD, etc)? You can sponsor an entire retreat for a group of moms or dads! Remember, this is a national network and events may be held in an area local to you.
Ask us about the advertising benefits of session sponsorship.
Even if *you* are not in need of a retreat, you probably know someone who could really use one but might never ask. "It's ok, I'm fine". "No, we don't have the money for that".
How can you help?
Share AMR with your special needs community.
Contribute towards our general grant pool or donate for a specific mom's visit. Eliminating the "financial excuse" is a big first step!
Contact us to begin planning a small group event based on your friend's needs and location. We rely on the initiative of the community to plan these events.
